Today, the Acting Solicitor General of the United States authorized the National Labor Relations Board to represent itself in the Supreme Court case of NLRB v. Murphy Oil USA, Inc., No. 16-307. The Supreme Court granted certiorari in the Murphy Oil case on January 13, 2017, along with two other cases, Epic Systems Corporation v. Jacob Lewis and Ernst and Young LLP, et al. v. Stephen Morris. The three cases present the question of whether arbitration agreements that bar employees from pursuing work-related claims on a collective or class basis in any forum violate the National Labor Relations Act.
